about

A dream team if ever there was one, ‘Kid Fonque’ and rising star ‘DJ Whisky’ have crafted a seductive, richly-textured composition which songbird ‘Zaki Ibrahim’ has taken to sublime heights. ‘Be’ is a afro-tinged, drum-driven deep house number that is guaranteed to inspire some arm-raising, hip swaying dancefloor action. Showcasing the enthralling vocals that only she is capable of – Zaki’s intimate conversation draws you into a hypnotic realm of rhythm before expanding into a breathtaking ballad.

‘2sides’ is a magical blend of everything that Kid Fonque is loved for: broken beats, house, jazziness and a hint of hip hop. An elegant piano loop dances on a warm bass drum - then a bass melody creeps in. Now we’re on the dancefloor. Clever, intricate percussive elements evoke the hum of a smoky Jazz club - hands clap and hi-hats snap. Just when you think this groove has reached its final destination – The Layders’ king of keys - ‘V The Vowel’ lays down an infectious melody and the script is flipped. The cherry on top? ‘Theo Parrish’ talking you through his DJ philosophy. It’s fresh and full of surprises - your new favourite tune has arrived.

The first of the ‘Be’ remixes is provided by deep house stalwart, ‘Atjazz’ and South African production prodigy ‘Jullian Gomes’ – a pair who frequently team up for in-studio experimentation and artistry. Cloaked in a steady groove, their remix bubbles with warmth and charm. Driving drums are layered with sun-baked chords before Zaki’s celestial vocals cast their spell. Infectiously spirited and intense, this mix will find itself at home on deeper dancefloors.

London’s ‘Jonny Miller’ has cooked up a bassy masterpiece that defies categorisation. Bold, brutal and mesmerizing - this heavy-rolling excursion into deeper frequencies flaunts his production prowess and gives a nod to his broken beat and bass roots at the same time. Wobble and wallop in equal measure – a house/bass hybrid that demands a rewind.
